Recipient Policy Single Mailbox Exclusion in Exchange 2003 Standard

I have a recipient policy setup to delete items in the deleted items folder for all users that are older than 2 weeks.  This has been working out great but a new CEO came onboard the doesn't want to have her stuff deleted automatically.  The policy is currently applied to Users with Exchange mailbox on the exchange server.  Here's the actual filter rule:  

(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(msExchHomeServerName=/o=First Organization/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=MAIL2)) ))))

How can I exclude 1 mailbox from the policy?  If I was running Exchange 2003 Enterprise I could create a separate mailbox store (I guess) but I'm not sure what I should do in this case... also, I don't want to have to modify this everytime I add a new user.

Any options?

Thanks

A different storage group is the only way I can think of to do it.  I believe you can have two storage groups in Exchange 2003 Std.

Hope this helps!

I already tried to create another storage group and I recieved the following message:  "This storage group already contains the maximum number of store allowed"

I guess this means that only 1 mailbox store and 1 public store is allowed in standard edition.

Sounds like you are actually on the right track .. just refining the LDAP query.
